    May 17, 2007, 7:55 PM - Mirta Gev #1

    So I'm starting my first Armor (huzzah) and for some wonderful reason I'm going to try for Mirta Gev. For those of you who don't know Mirta is Boba's Granddaughter who had a Mando Father.

    Now the book doesn't go into much detail about her armor just that:
    - A BlasTech 515 gun (version one)- 100%
    - Gun hoist - 0%
    - Gray body armor 50%
    - Heavy boots 100%
    - Heart-of-fire 90%
    - Helmet 100%

    total progress: 73%

    So far I've got planed this gray/black combo:

    lol



    Soooo... any tips? It seems like I have all the freedom as to how it's going to look.


    Wish me luck, mates.

    Paint: $21
    Plastic: $10
    Bucket: Free
    Gun: $0.69
    Gloves: $7
    Total spent (so far): $39

    The good thing about my custom, if I dont have my helmet done by C4, I can go bucketless, and since it is my character, it will be ok.

    That being said, you are very lucky not to have a helmet, it will be a cheaper project for you, and you can spend some money on things other than the helmet that you want.

    But mando helmets are pretty WIZARD!!

    Definitely a bit of $$ saved by not using a helmet. I will be watching the progress on this project =)

    Hmm the trooper thing must have been just a notion.

    I finally go the pants/shirt for the bottom. I just so happen to have pants with lots of straps and pockets and a thin turtle neck shirt laying around the house.

    Well now that I got me some money (yey money) I can see what I can get online. I would like better if I could just make it (I wanna check out this sintra stuff) cus I want to change it around anyways. Went to my costume store and they disappoint me. fifty bucks fabric armor? Come on! Still looking around for other stuff I can use though.

    Maybe I should add some pocket on to this and make it my belt?

    Or if you could put it around your calves or biceps. It looks like ammo or a belt to hold ammo.

    The belt thing is too short to go around my chest, unless it make the back have a normal strap.

    Man! What a day! One of those days where I just want to slap my forehead and say "doh!"

    I was researching this sintra stuff and as I went deeper and deeper to figuring out what it is and how to use it I realized... that I have like two sheets of this stuff in my house! I just called it Foam Core! WHOA. And I can get more at work with employee discount.

    Or if you wanted to keep it as a belt ,do the fett braided belt(maybe burgundy or gray color) and then wrap this metal belt around ontop of it. Sorta like Boba's leather ammo belt ontop the braided belt.
    The chrome color against/ontop the burgundy or gray will give a nice contrast. Just a thought?? Feel free to post pics for us to see and to throw ideas out there for ya. Please don't be scared to show your ideas & progress as you haven't so far;-)

    that was a birthday gift a friend gave me; a belt only long enough to go around my waist. It was pretty cheep though and soon broke. I repaired it though now it's missing beads. I asked my friend where she got it, told me it came from this ghetto chain store called Pretty Girl.

    that's pretty bad *** looking though.

    Got Started oh my kneepad...things
    I used the tubberware idea from Clay's thread. Got me some nice thick plastic, you know. But, you know, it was a bit too thick. I couldn't cut it. Had to burn the whole thing. Then sand paper the edges a bit. Almost done with them. All I have left for them is to add the strap and I wanna add a bullet hole on one of the knee pads, which means more burning fun for me!




    Don't know if I should add darts on the sides. I do wanna keep it simple.

    Oh lucky me! I got the new book, Sacrifice, and it seems that Mitra has updated her armor!
    Now she has a FULL suit complete with Jet Pack (and perhaps a cape) AND a helmet.
    D:
    That means the helmet that's I've been "making for fun" will have to be taken seriously. Lucky since it's suppose to be a new helmet I won't have to deal with dents or fake paint chippings.
    Oh gosh more work.

    Picked me up a Jango bucket kit. A little putty and a little burning and it's rather good. I still have to replace the random plastic square with the leans I found. I'm still painting my bucket, ran out of white XD. But yeah I went for the Gray/black/white combo. I also had to add more transplant plastic to the inside because I felt the original was too thin.



    Then I got me a cheep water gun. I still have to paint in the little details with a brush. And I can still shoot water out of it


    (this is the camera/leans I found, is it good?)




    Also found this odd bag laying around. It's a hard plastic, smooth. Jet Pack? I would have to change the straps to face the other way to make a sort of backpack:




    D:
    I got a job audition to work on so I wont be able to work on my suit for a while. Oh poo.
